DSN General Liability Waiver (for ALL members!)


(updated Feb 17, 2014)

The short version:
You agree that DSN is not responsible for your safety or your belongings - before, during, or after - any DSN event, no matter where such event may be held, or what your participation in the event may be.

As the group continues to grow, and our events grow in their variety & scope, we must begin to enforce a sense of "personal responsibility" amongst you, our DSN Members.

Because we sometimes offer casually-organized sports events, such as softball or soccer or other games where physical contact may be a part of the action, or activities where we have little or no control over the environment (meeting in a public crowd), we must ask that you agree to these terms, to mitigate any risks of liability to DSN or its Organizers.

We expect everyone to partake in all our events with a degree of 'common sense' (but especially at a pub night or dinner, where alcohol consumption is likely part of the socializing).
But since 'common sense' is a vague concept, we have prepared the Liability Waiver Terms below for all DSN events. has its own Terms of Service - and its employees and staff ("MU"), the Calgary Do Something New Meetup Group, and its Leadership Team ("Organizers"); collectively known as "DSN";
cannot be held liable for any actions of, or against, any member of DSN, by any member of DSN, or by any member of the general public, at or near, any venue at which a DSN event is being held.

By joining DSN as a Member, you hereby waive any current or future, claims against DSN, that may arise from any injury while participating in, or for any losses incurred during participation in, any DSN event.

Certain venues at which DSN holds events, may require specific waivers to directly protect the venue from such liabilities. This does not exempt you from your own responsibilities as an individual, and does not supercede this Liability Waiver for DSN.

You hereby acknowledge that as an individual, you are prepared to take reasonable actions as necessary, to protect yourself from potential harm or loss, and agree that DSN cannot be held responsible for any such harm or loss suffered as a result of your agreement to participate in a Group event.
